Podcast: Shortages in quarantine


Around 2,600 people are currently in quarantine in Mon State, with most having returned over the border from Thailand due to COVID-19. With allegations of water shortages and other difficulties, this week Doh Athan investigates life in quarantine in Mon State.

Doh Athan is a weekly podcast that looks at human rights issues. It’s produced by Frontier with media partners from around the country, through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle. It is supported by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Myanmar and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.

Listen in Burmese.
